2 arrested in alleged meth lab in Eunice apartment

Being convicted of a drug crime in Louisiana can have a crippling effect on someone. Having to spend time in jail or pay heavy fines can be a real burden on people, particularly young adults. While it's true that people may make serious mistakes in their youth, these missteps can have real -- and permanent -- consequences.

This is the situation two young people find themselves in after they were arrested and jailed in Eunice. They were charged with operating a clandestine drug laboratory, allegedly to manufacture methamphetamine. The pair -- a 25-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman -- were also charged with possessing drug paraphernalia.

Reports say that officers received a tip regarding potential drug activity at an apartment in Eunice. When they got there, officers say they smelled a chemical odor coming from the apartment. The woman who was arrested opened the door when officers knocked, and admitted them to the apartment. The man who lived there then emerged from another room.

At that point, the pair were arrested on suspicion of manufacturing meth. Because of that, the fire department was called in order to make sure there was not a risk of explosion from the chemicals. The apartment was subsequently cleaned to remove any leftover hazardous materials.

It isn't clear what the prospects are for the two people who are charged. Reports say that the man admitted to making meth, but it isn't clear if the woman was involved as well. She at least falls under suspicion, however, because of her presence in the home. Because of the potential for differing circumstances for different people arrested at the same time, it might be in each person's interest to seek separate legal representation. That, of course, is up to them.
